”The request concerns personal protective equipment, PPE, for key services other than medical care and nursing,” says Anneli Bergholm Söder, head of MSB’s operational department.
One government agency to coordinate PPE
The PPE needs of medical care and nursing are now comprehensively monitored, but not those of other key services. Smaller stakeholders may additionally have difficulties obtaining PPE as suppliers prioritise bigger customers. MSB has requested that the government make one agency the coordinator of PPE purchases for all key services.
